Tyson Fury challenges Oleksandr Usyk for summer showdown at Wembley


Tyson Fury has challenged Oleksandr Usyk to a summer showdown – asking the Ukrainian to “rekindle” their fight plans.

The undefeated heavyweights were close to agreeing on a bout before talks fell through in March.

Usyk had agreed to a 30 per cent split before his team pulled the plug on the fight after Fury moved the goalposts.

It was then revealed earlier this week that talks had resumed but were at a standstill.


Now Fury has once again challenged Usyk to a mouthwatering undisputed clash at Wembley this summer.

In an Instagram message to Usyk and his team, Fury said, “I’m sick of all this back and forward ‘he said, she said’. Why don’t we just do this?

“Why don’t we fight this summer, me and you, at Wembley Stadium for the percentage you’ve already agreed?

“And if you want the rematch so desperately, you can have one. I don’t need rematches, I don’t need nothing because I’m going to cut you down like cheese.

“So here’s the offer. Let’s do the fight at Wembley this summer, me and you.”

SunSport reports that Fury went on to aim a dig at Deontay Wilder and Daniel Dubois – who Usyk has been linked with fighting instead of the Gypsy King.

He continued: “Forget about fighting Deontay Wilder who I’ve knocked out twice, and forget about fighting Daniel Dubois who’s not on our levels.

“You’ve already beat [Anthony] Joshua. The only fight left is me and you for undisputed.

“I know you didn’t fancy it the first time so let’s see if we can rekindle it and have a good fight for the fans. Let’s get it on! Make the right decision.”
